The only problems we've had was with sodium hypochlorite based wipes that tore up the paint on the machine not to mention clouding the touch screens. I couldn't find much information on Clinell or V-Wipes but V-Wipes sound to be 70% ethanol based which I don't think will damage the machine. Clinell looks to have 70% ethanol as well as CHG. I don't know how machines will react to CHG.

We use Virex and have had our machines for 16 years. No issues with the screen but had some paint chip off but they are places on corners and such so I would chalk that up to age. The contact time is 10 minutes so not as friendly as wipes with like a 2 minute contact time.
